Myrtle Beach, SC (WMBF) - You may be able to recycle your natural Christmas tree after the holiday season. Municipalities like Myrtle Beach and Surfside Beach will collect Christmas trees curbside in January. You're asked to removed all decorations. Residents in Myrtle Beach, that don't want to wait for their tree to be picked up, may take trees to a drop-off point on Mr. Joe White Avenue at 21st Avenue North Extention. Trees recycled in Myrtle Beach will be ground into mulch and available to the public for free in February.

Residents of Darlington County may drop off natural Christmas trees to be recycled and turned in to mulch beginning December 26th until January 16th, 2016.

Horry County residents can bring their Christmas trees to designated areas to be chipped and recycled into mulch beginning December 26th. This service will be available until January 25th. You're asked to bring a container to collect mulch. 

These are just some of the county and municipalities offering to grind Christmas trees this year, be sure to check with your own local government to see if it's available where you live.
